I have done a first experiment.

It seems as if the series [1] does the opposite of what we need... It just
skips entries in struct mmc_fixup if the DT does *not* match.

This new match is not even tried in the wl1251 case since card->cis.vendor
and card->cis.device are not properly initialized when mmc_fixup_device() is called.
(in the upstream code the init_card function sets these and also sets MMC_QUIRK_NONSTD_SDIO
to early abort before sdio_read_cccr, sdio_read_common_cis, and mmc_fixup_device).

What I don't get from the code is how cis.vendor or cis.device can be
initialized from device tree for a specific device. As far as I see it can
only be checked for and some quirks can be set from a table if vendor and
device read from the CIS registers do match. 

Instead, we want to match DT and define some values for an otherwise unknown
device (i.e. we can't match by vendor or other methods) to help to initialize
the interface. So in mmc_fixup_device it is too late and we need something
running earlier, based purely on device tree information...

BR and thanks,
